First of all, enter the BIOS screen and set the floppy drive to the first boot device (it is usually set to this by default).

Then try putting a floppy in again during startup, does the green floppy light actually come on showing that the computer is trying to access the drive.

If the green light is permanently on, this means that the wrong end of the floppy cable is plugged in and it needs to be reversed.

If there is no green access light at all this shows that there is a loose connection inside the PC. Simply open the PC case, remove the floppy cable and push it in again firmly.

This should resolve the problem. If (in the second case scenario) the floppy drive is still not detected you either have a damaged floppy cable or a non-functioning floppy disk drive.
